More Discord Migration Details & Mountain Gale Demonstration!

Minion Masters!

Discord Account Migration


We're able to share some more about the process of Account migration we'll be offering with Version 1.18 for Discord users. 

(Previously we discussed that support for the Discord version of Minion Masters will be ending with the new update due to concerns about the game's stability - Check out the post here if you'd like to read more.)

With the patch, when you launch the game through Discord you'll be given a 6 digit code that's unique to your account. When playing on Steam, you'll be able to select a "Migrate Discord User" option in the Menu where you can enter the code to start a one-way operation that replaces the account you're playing with on our server with that of the Discord account.

If you own DLC on the Steam account, but not on Discord, you'll unlock the content once you've transferred your progress. 

However, if you already own the DLC on Discord, you will not receive them a second time for your account, even if you purchase it from the Steam store. We cannot flag your account as having purchased the DLC, so the option to buy it will still be there even though you won't get anything from it.

Note that we are not responsible for any incorrect or accidental account transfers that happen as a result of you accidentally sharing your code. Don't transfer your account while streaming, and recheck your Steam credentials to make sure you're logged into the correct account before migrating. Keep your code safe!

Version 1.18 will be releasing on the 29th of October. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at the usual places, or via support@betadwarf.com.

Halloween decorations are live today!



The arenas are getting spooky with today's mini-Update! As detailed in last week's blog, all your favourite arenas have a facelift - Have fun with the haunted festivities and let us know which modified arena is your favourite! And get ready for a huge DLC sale on the 27th, and that special free shop offer on Halloween itself!

If you're on Xbox, we're aiming to have the update out as soon as possible tomorrow!

Important Update for Minion Masters on Discord + Fanart Contest Winners

Minion Masters!

Minion Masters on Discord


We have some important news to share about the status of the game on Discord. In recent months we've been concerned about the stability of the platform in regards to the game, with users experiencing difficulties related to the platform itself that we can't resolve. While we expected this to happen eventually as Discord had officially ended support for game distribution, they occurred a lot sooner than anticipated. As such, we're making the call that starting with Version 1.18, we will no longer support the Discord version of Minion Masters.

We don't want to just switch off supporting the Discord version of the game without offering any alternatives for everyone playing through the platform, however, so we're working on a system to allow you to migrate your account progress from Discord to Steam. We'll have more news on how this will exactly work in the coming weeks, but the basic concept is that it will be a one-time ability to replace your existing Steam account's progress with that of your Discord's. This can be any steam account of your choosing, so if you want to keep your Steam account's progress as well, you'll be able to do so by simply making another account. We currently cannot offer merging the two accounts together due to technical limitations.

None of this will affect our Discord Server - Just the ability to play the game through Discord. We'll still aim to be as active as ever on there. By slimming down on our available platforms, it also enables us to free resources to focus on the core game itself with more features and fixes than we could have done before. Thanks to everyone that's joined us through the Discord version of Minion Masters, and we're hoping you'll continue to join us for the future of the game.

Please note that we cannot offer this to users on the Xbox or Steam platforms at this point in time that wish to move their accounts to another platform, this service is only for Discord players at this time.

Nightmares Adventure Released & Valorian Perk Catchup

Minion Masters!

The Nightmares Adventure is out NOW!


The Final Chapter in the storyline that began with Saving Jadespark Jungle is here!

It's time to make your counter-attack against the Voidborne demons. It all comes down to this - You win this war, or Jadespark Jungle may never see light again. No pressure.

Featuring our new Master Valorian as one of the playable Adventure masters, with unique perks, and a preview of Searing Light as one of his starting cards - Check out his amazing visuals in action before he releases in Version 1.17! Alternatively, take up arms as returning masters Milloween or Nylora to push back against the demon threat. Be it righteous retribution, arcane armageddon, or some simple voidborne vengeance, stand defiant in the face of the nightmares to save Jadespark Jungle!

There's also two new relics - For The Greater Good, which instantly combusts a friendly Minion when their health is below 50%, or another extra-rare new perk from the insane mind of a particular BetaDwarf programmer. Get your hands on the thrilling conclusion for just 700 Rubies!


But don't take our word for it - There'll be a livestream on the official Minion Masters Twitch Account tonight where Community Manager That Sprite will be taking on the challenge of both Normal and Hard mode - and trying not to embarrass himself in the process! Make sure to stop by our Twitch channel at 1800 CEST and hang out with the community in a much more relaxed environment to our regular Developer Streams!

Valorian Reveal Catchup

Have you been keeping on top of the reveals of our brand new Master? If not, don't fret - We've got a handy recap of what we know so far!

Valorian is a brand new Empyrean Master coming in Version 1.17 as part of the Free and Premium Season Pass paths. This superhuman warrior is ready to take on any foe without fear!


He comes with a mighty basic attack that deals 40 damage every 2 seconds, at a range of 10 - Getting buffed up by 5 damage for every Empyrean card in his hand, up to a huge 60! His First Perk, Holy Light, has him dealing out small doses of 15 healing to up to 5 friendly Minions on the battlefield every 5 seconds. It's not a ton, but it can make all the difference!


Meanwhile, just yesterday we revealed his second perk, Searing Light - which adds a card of the same name to Valorian's deck. Searing Light is a 1 mana spell card that has Valorian dive off the Master Tower with his holy wings to strike down his enemies personally. It uses his Master Damage, meaning you can get extra value from having Empyrean cards in your hand while playing this!


That's all for now, but stay tuned next week to our Twitter and Facebook for the reveal of his final perk and a full game featuring Valorian to show off everything in action!
